Almost chicken time

So the kittens are growing nicely and three will leave and go to new homes in a few weeks. We will be keeping one of the calicos who is yet to be named, and the gray little one who will be called Tuesday. We are now a house with three cats, a Newfoundland, a hamster and by summers end, chickens.

Once the garden is planted and the kittens move out, I will begin preparing for the chickens. I am hoping to be able to order 17 week pullets rather than day olds so that we can get our eggs sooner, but we will have to see what happens. First in line will be building out the coop and run, which needs to be covered due to all of the hawks we have.
